Rachel Brathen

Founder & CEO, Certified Yoga Teacher

Hi! I'm Rachel Brathen; a Swedish native, New York Times best-selling author, serial entrepreneur and international yoga teacher living in Aruba with my husband Dennis and our baby girl Lea Luna. After graduating from school in Stockholm, I traveled to Costa Rica where I found the joy of incorporating yoga into my everyday life. Deepening my yoga practice and beginning teaching, I moved to Central America where I spent years exploring the intricate studies of yoga and spirituality. After moving to Aruba early 2010, I began teaching yoga full time. My classes are a dynamic Vinyasa Flow integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques with basic poses and creative sequencing, but asana is only a small piece of the work we do in the yoga shala. I incorporate holistic therapeutic tools like sharing, active listening and journaling in every session and there is a deep level of heart healing at the center of every class I teach. My classes serve the purpose of deepening a connection not only to ourselves, but with the people around us. I love to share pieces of my life with the world! I do so every day through social media and you will find me traveling all over the world to connect with the amazing community I call home. I am the founder of www.oneOeight.com; an online platform for yoga, meditation, and healing. As the most successful crowd-funded yoga project of all time, the platform is made up of a vast community of dedicated practitioners from all over the world looking to cultivate balance, create space for inner healing and deepen their yoga practice. With an amazing team of experienced guides and teachers, oneOeight offers heart-centered classes designed to fit the always evolving needs of body, mind and soul. In 2016, Dennis and I opened Island Yoga - the largest yoga studio in the Caribbean, boasting two shalas, a boutique, an organic café and offices for our team. Visit www.islandyoga.com for information on teacher trainings, workshops and to see the upcoming schedule! Giving back to the community has always been at the center of all of my initiatives – with the help of awesome staff and volunteers I run two non-profit organizations: Sgt Pepper’s Friends; an animal rescue foundation based in Aruba and Yoga Girl® Foundation, benefitting women and children in need.

Program Team Floor Leader, Certified Yoga Teacher

I'm Jess! My primary role is to help and assist on the floor during retreats and trainings. I'm Rachel's right-hand lady for all her personal needs during programs and I also tip-toe around the room and give the juiciest adjustments. I've been teaching for nearly 8 years (I got my YTT at 15!) and I often teach in the studio a couple of times per week. Outside of work I am a dog mom who loves watching and learning dances off of YouTube. I'm silly, fun, and friendly -- and I can't wait to meet you!

Enrollment Coordinator

Hi! I’m Katrina. My role within the Yoga Girl Dream Team is to welcome and support all applicants in their process of applying to, and arriving for, our Retreat and Training Programmes. I’ll be that friendly face that everyone is hoping to find when they walk through a new door, so leave your worries at home and prepare for the journey of a life time! How did I end up here? I guess the short answer is that I chose to take the path less travelled. As I approached my thirtieth birthday stumbled upon an uncomfortable truth that simply couldn’t be untold. I looked up and realised that, despite ‘having it all’ on paper, I was dangerously far from happy... So I took a deep breath asked the universe for some guidance and jumped! Saying ‘yes’ to life and following an internal spark led me through four years of incredible adventures from working for Arabic royalty, to travelling and teaching for the Dubai elite, before delivering me to my vision board dream... of running a wellness retreat (in the desert!), completing my Island Yoga Teacher Training and now... supporting this incredible Yoga Girl Community as the official ‘Mumma Bear’. So excited to be a part of this evolving space and super honored to be supporting and serving within it. See you soon! x

This precious pocket of Costa Rica was home to Rachel Brathen, Yoga Girl®, when she first left Sweden many moons ago. A love for the land, the people and the food has kept her returning over the years and in 2018 she led her first collaboration retreat with Envision Festival. The combination was such an epic success that it is the one Yoga Girl program that stands during her ‘year off’ in 2020. So if you want to practice with Rachel this year, this is your opportunity!

Rachel, Dennis and Lea Luna will be guiding you through a week of relaxation and rejuvenation with a focus on the internal exploration of what it truly means to gather and ‘be’ in community. Yoga flows, meditation, sacred ceremony, ocean adventures, good food, beautiful sunsets and new friends aplenty - this retreat is a true opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and fill your cup.

Following this magical five day jungle retreat we move into festival mode! Go wild and dance until dawn with your new friends at Rachel’s favorite festival where the music never stops and the sun shines all day long.
